For one team, they are at the doorstep of taking their football program to another level of respectability by becoming bowl-eligible. For the other team, a victory would be something that hasn't happened for them at almost two months.
The (4-4) Iowa State Cyclones are tied with the (2-6) Kansas Jayhawks at 10-10 going into the fourth quarter at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.
Neither team has found a way to take command of the game thus far, as two turnovers from Iowa State (1 fumble, 1 interception) have killed drives for the Cyclones. Kansas has struggled thus far to convert on third downs and their passing attack has underperformed thus far.
Iowa State's Jared Barnett has 138 yards passing and 109 yards rushing thus far.
